Publisher's Summary

An isolated beach on the island of Guernsey in the English Channel is the scene of the murder of Guy Brouard, one of Guernsey's wealthiest inhabitants and its main benefactor. Forced as a child to flee the Nazis in Paris, Brouard was engaged in his latest project when he died: a museum in honor of those who resisted the German occupation of the island during World War II.

It is from this period of time that his murderer may well have come. But there are others on Guernsey with reason to want Guy Brouard dead: his wives, his business associates, his current mistress, the underprivileged teenagers he mentored - any of whom might have harbored a secret motive for murder. As family and friends gather for the reading of the will, Deborah and Simon St. James find that seemingly everyone on the history-haunted island has something to hide. And behind all the lies and alibis, a killer is lurking. In order to bring this person to justice, the St. James must delve into Guernsey's dark history - both past and present - and into the troubled psyche of someone who may have exacted retribution for the most unspeakable crime of all.

In A Place of Hiding,,best-selling novelist Elizabeth George marks new territory in the darker landscapes of human relationships. She tells a gripping, suspenseful story of betrayal and devotion, war and remembrance, love and loss...and the higher truths to which we must all ultimately answer.

    "never again"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I vowed I'd never read/listen to another E. George novel unless it was abridged. Now I vow I will never read/listen to another abridged or not. Lame plot, cliche after cliche, no character development.


    What could Elizabeth George have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not written it.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Simon Jones?

    The narration couldn't save it or make it any worse.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment

    "Dissappinted"

    I don't think this book should be included in the Inspector Lynley series. An offshoot or side story yes, but not in the series. Also, I felt that the abridged version made it seem even more lacking in plot and the transitions were difficult to follow. In addition there were at least two characters who were supposed to be American and the American accent was poor and sloppy.
